5 reasons to travel more

We often look at travelling and vacations only as a fun time we have once or twice or if we’re lucky - a couple of times a year. But it is actually a lot more than just some time off that you spend doing basically nothing but having fun.

Here are some photos from a vacation in Greece that took me to amazingly beautiful places and made me become more aware, appreciating and open to new experiences. I knew it’s always so with travels but yet I was very surprised to find out how much a trip can really change me and so I realized that many of us often underestimate the power of traveling. So let me take you through my 5 reasons why we all need to travel more and what I think makes travelling so important in our lifes.

  1. The more the better & little by little

    First of all, I think the “once or twice a year is okay” approach to travelling is most of the time wrong. A vacation should not be a one off event you are impatiantly waiting for. It should rather be a small reoccuring event that takes place each time you have a weekend to spare or even a day. This way traveling will give you the chance to more often get this nice feeling of being refreshed and clear minded as well as to develop the view that fun can happen anytime and so we should always be open to new adventures.

  2. Clearer view on life

    Traveling is an opportunity to get a more distant and better view on your lfe and priorities. Having moe spare time, enjoying the sunsets etc. is a good chance for you to forget for a while about all the stress and pressure and finally think as clearly as you are actually able to when no circumstances are troubling you. So that’s the best time for big decisions and developing new ideas since you’re at a 100% capacity you now.

  3. Productivity and ideas

    The freedom that being away from home and most of the people you know gives you is also important. You get a feeling of being a lot more capable and stronger. You’re a lot more likely to believe in your plans and big dreams if you distance yourself from daily duties and habits - not for any other reason but because you have 24 hours to do what you want and you actually realize how much you manage to accomplish within a day.

  4. Happy times

    Travelling is great for bonding and rebonding with your closest people. Being too busy and having too many thing to do often stops us from spending enough quality time with the most important people in our lifes. When travelling you can talk, walk and discover new places together, try some new weird sport or dish and you will surely laugh together and discuss random fun things that probably never even occur to you in daily life. And that’s a really nice experience!

  5. Broaden your horizons

    And last but not least, travelling is a way to broaden your horizons and get to know other cultures and lifestyles. This will enrich you and show you how different other people’s habits and traditions are, how many of these new things you are curious about and how much you can learn through travelling. And this will make you want even more and more trips, more new stories and more new places!

New hairstyle & hair color

Hello, happy October and happy autumn! As part of my preparation for the new season, the fall trends and all the projects and events coming up for me, I decided to make a style change. So I recently got a new haircolor and hairstyle. Up until now I've been rockin' a long blonde hairstyle with dark ombre roots in my natural brown color. My hair was super long and hippie style, I actually liked it a lot but I felt I wanted to try something new.

I had a pretty clear idea what I wanted my hairstyle to be. I wanted a lighter color and textured hairstyle, shorter bangs and a pinch of 'wild thing' haha becasue I'm a rock chick of course. I did my best to find photos of a color and a hairstyle I liked and then headed for my hairstylist appointment.

And here comes the best part. It's because I've been going to the same hair salon for about two years and the results are just always stunning. My stylist Petia always listens to me when I'm explaining to her what I want for my hair and then she does her magic and Voila! I look exactly as I wanted to. Thank you very much, Petia! :) And this time it was no exception, I was so happy when I got home that I immediately started taking selfies of course haha. If you're following me on Instagram, I bet you saw them in my stories. :D And now I'm ready for autumn and trying out different dos which I have decided to start doing more often in the future so stay tuned for more hair related blog post and photos!

Thank you for reading guys! I'd love to hear about your fave hairstyles, latest haircolor and hairstyle changes and more so tell me in the comments below! :)
